Information for Orton patients regarding medication and the Surgery


Due to the current situation of COVID-19, for the time being there will be no Doctors appointment at Orton Surgery. The Doctors and Nurses are operating a telephone triage system at Shap Medical Practice. If they feel that a face to face consultation is necessary they will book you an appointment at Shap. All of our appointments are bookable on the day. Please contact the surgery at 8.30am to arrange a telephone triage appointment with the Doctor and Nurses. Surgery appointments will be kept to a minimum to reduce the risk of infection to our patients. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY WITHOUT A PRIOR APPOINTMENT Please check the NHS 111 website if you are unwell with any coronavirus symptoms.
